SNOW BUNTING still there

The SNOW BUNTING was still around this afternoon. When I arrived it was opposite the steps still seeming to find plenty of food. It's got plenty now as I chucked a bag of millet at it which should keep it happy for a day or two. The clear water area has enlarged since yesterday afternoon when I went up to look at the female Smew with Warren, despite the cold night, although I think the temperature crept up above freezing today. No sign of the Smew there this evening though. I have been putting apples out in the garden and today counted 15 Blackbirds, mostly rufugees from the continent I guess. Quite a sight in such a tiny garden. Also a male Blackcap has been around on and off (Charlie Jackson)
